It’s the first time a Nollywood movie is breaking such a record.

In a Netflix.com global ranking of the most-watched films in English, the crime thriller came in third with a total of 11.2 million views and 21.3 million hours between September 25, 2023 and October 1, 2023.

Viewers in 69 countries, including South Korea, USA, Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Kenya, Martinique, Panama, Poland, Romania, Venezuela, and Nigeria, watch The Black Book.

Acknowledging the history-making feat on Twitter, the film’s director, Editi Effiong, thanked everyone for contributing to its success. “Never in my life did I think this could happen. I extend my heartfelt thanks to everyone who watched, shared, and discussed.. Thank you, my amazing cast and crew,” he posted.

Effiong’s debut becomes the biggest African title on global Netflix.

The Black Book stars Richard Mofe-Damijo, a man whose son is wrongly accused and killed for the crime of kidnapping. The father, who became a deacon after retiring from a dark past, takes matters into his own hands and fights a crooked police gang and a shadowy organisation to clear his son’s name.
Anakle Films produces, starring Olumide Oworu, Sam Dede, Shaffy Bello, Iretiola Doyle, and more.
